Albany -- Dozens of Marines and Law Enforcement officers ran the length of Dougherty County this morning for a very good cause. This was the 25th year for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, to raise money for Georgia Special Olympics.

The Marines carried the Georgia Special Olympics torch from the Logistics Base in Southeast Dougherty County to the courthouse steps. After a ceremony, Officers and Deputies with the Sheriff's Office, Dougherty County and Albany Police, and other law enforcement agencies carried the torch to Dawson, where it was passed on.

Law enforcers will carry the torch across the state, raising money for special olympics through community sponsors. The money helps athletes in Albany and Dougherty County compete in the games.

Last year's run raised $13,000 for area athletes, and they hope to top that goal this year.
